Some New Places to Check Out

October 1, 2010

For sometime now, the Crazy Arse, erm, Madpriest has been working out an online Anglican community for the greater church of Christian Misfits. After months of anticipation, the new venture is finally starting today!

Can I hear a hip-hip-hooray?

It is called St. Laika’s and has a companion site called The Anchorhold. Here is the blurb from the site:

Absolutely everyone is welcome at St. Laika’s.

We are an ecclesial community without any formal membership. You are part of it if you want to be part of it.

We are pan-denominational and nobody is excluded because of their personal beliefs or lack of belief. Our worship is from the Christian tradition and our liturgy is borrowed from any source that takes our fancy.

We are an emergent church. We go where God leads us. We are an experiment that is attempting to blur the edges between the virtual and the real worlds. It is our intention to have a presence outside of the internet. We are an international group but each of us is based firmly in our own local context. We are what we are.

On this webpage we will be creating opportunities in which we can worship together. There will also be articles posted, not to tell you want to think but to get you thinking. If you wish to contribute in any way please email the blog administrator via the link below. You can also comment on any post in the normal blogging fashion although nasty or trollish stuff will be rejected.

Our webpage THE ANCHORHOLD concentrates on the spiritual, prayerful and contemplative and is administered by Ellie Finlay, a solitary religious who has dedicated her life to such matters.

Basically, use St. Laika’s in whatever way you want to. Take what is helpful and ignore that which is not.

God is very near and love will conquer hate.

And from The Anchorhold:

Thomas Merton once said that “the only thing to remember about prayer is to begin where you are.” The Anchorhold is a blog about remembering, about beginning and about how to know where we are – where we really are. It is a blog about spiritual practice.

Whatever the term “spiritual practice” means to you right now, you are welcome here. This is not a place for finished saints! Let’s explore the relationship between prayer and action and what it means to pray without ceasing. And let us support each other in the process.

This is to be a very active and participatory community. Please do check it out, and join us in whatever way you feel God’s call so to do.

It is a new day, and, we begin again a new thing. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
